Song Cue: Tradition!


This morning at the grocery store there was a man filling the candy shelves. I stopped for just a moment to watch him, thinking what a delightful job he had for this time of year. As I watched, I realized it was almost Christmas and Christmas in the Mix household meant and means red and green M & Ms!! And there they were - and now here they are - in the same bowl that has held them for Ages. Just so my daughters know, yes, they are the ones with peanuts, but then as you were growing up there were no peanut M & Ms. Allow mom a little slack to change the basic tradition just a bit. 
Christmas and Holiday fun to all of you!

When did M&M's add peanuts? I seem to remember peanut M&M's from my childhood, and I believe that I'm older than your daughters. Now I'm scratching my head...

I don't remember when - all I remember is our red and green M&Ms were plain. Then there were no more red ones because of the red dye 2 scare. So we used the mixed colors. Then some scientist got busy and created a red dye that wasn't a problem and so we had red and green again. And - honestly - I looked for plain ones and these are what the store had.
